TEMPORARY APPOINTMENT PROTOCOL:

The physician and staff are pending scheduling of the Covid-19 vaccination by the Fairfax County Health Department.

  Once everyone at Tysons Pain Center is found to be safely eligible and vaccinated,

we will implement new appointment protocol for in-person appointments and procedures.

In-person examinations and procedures will remain suspended,

until further notice.

We will continue to report to our office on a very limited schedule, for Telehealth treatment & remote services

for current patients.

When we re-open and resume regular office operations,

appointment and safety protocol will be strictly adjusted for the health & safety during this health crisis.

Patients must adhere to all new appointment safety guidelines in order to have an appointment.
